Upon study submission, members receive free, unlimited and immediate access to all study responses for their specialty on their member dashboard for one full year.

How it Works

Registration takes under one minute and requires no special information. Following immediate credential verification, members can access the study platform from their Member Dashboard to get started.

Efficient study completion requires collecting a few pieces of information prior to accessing the study platform. We suggest you print out the Study Worksheet from your Member Dashboard and complete it as instructed. The data collection software is identical to the worksheet and each question has been constructed for simple entry by clicking boxes, choosing from options or and entering information. This stage is designed to require no longer than 20 minutes.

Study completion entitles members to immediate access to all aggregated responses for their specialty study. The graphical and tabular results simplify data interpretation to facilitate meaningful comparisons, show relevant relationships and highlight trends in data elements. GreenMark makes it easy for members to update their study data from year to year to maintain this benefit at no cost.

Our sophisticated, yet easy to use  software allows members to filter their particular specialty database to design comparable cohorts for powerful and specific benchmarking of compensation and productivity variables.

Personalized Benchmarking – allows members to benchmark their own data within whatever comparison they choose.

1

The member chooses a productivity or compensation variable for analysis. For example: Total Compensation, Call Pay Rate, or Total Benefits

2

The member identifies characteristics of their practice to select filters that limit the database to comparable practices. For example: Academic, Hospital-employed, Metropolitan Area, Group Size 5-10, New York State, wRVU range 4000-6000/Yr

3

Results are presented in high-resolution, color, tabular and graphical format with the member’s study data benchmarked against a self-identified comparison cohort using survey variables.

4

The results can be printed out as a PDF file for use in contract negotiations or any other purpose.

5

Members have unlimited use of the software to explore results and generate extensive combinations of database queries.

Modeling Capabilities

Regional Economic Comparability

Syracuse, New York and Manhattan are both located in the Northeast, but that similar geographic location alone fails to justify a reasonable comparison of physician productivity and compensation. Unfortunately, aggregated national market research provides no better comparability.

GreeMark collects multiple sources of publicly reported regional economic information to provide a new dimension for creating accurate comparison cohorts for physician productivity and compensation benchmarking.

Specialty Labor Market Modeling

Physician practice valuation is frequently performed to evaluate arrangements between physicians and hospitals. Whether constructed as employment or lease agreements, these arrangements often span a term of several years.

GreenMark collects physician specialty market supply data and indicators of clinical demand to construct predictive models to forecast effects on productivity and compensation. This information provides members the ability to construct long term arrangements that comport with the future of each specialty.

Common Questions

We believe existing physician compensation market research is underpowered, highly biased and being used invalidly for inferential purposes. Without a high participation market research study collected with minimal bias, nobody knows whether a particular physician is compensated in the 25th percentile or the 90th percentile of the real population for a given specialty. In short, health care market participants deserve higher quality and more powerful compensation market information used appropriately.

This data visualization application permits users to filter their specialty database to design cohorts of physician practices that are just like them. When it comes to understanding where you fall among your colleagues regarding compensation or productivity variables, it is important to make sure you are comparing yourself to similar practices. allows you to define what is important or unique about your practice to find the right comparison group. Current physician compensation market research either compares your practice to all US physicians or those in your geographic region. But a small academic practice in Syracuse, NY can be much different than a large private practice in Boston and so such information fails to yield accurate information because comparability is limited.  allows you to solve this problem for yourself, and the results can be powerful.
Study participants receive access to all study data for their specialty at no cost for one full year as well as free access to , our proprietary data visualization application, to create select comparison groups from the database for personalized productivity and compensation benchmarking purposes.

As we recognize from clinical medicine, accurate data are powerful. You will be able to access information regarding total compensation, call pay rates, levels of compensation for management and leadership activities as well as many other sources of revenue for physicians. We have found few instances in compensation negotiations between health care providers where credible data fail to exert a profound effect on the outcome. While not a universal truth, having more compelling data provide the greatest opportunity to arrive at fair compensation. A comprehensive and time-relevant database of productivity and compensation information for your particular specialty is a persuasive resource, and the use of to design comparison cohorts can add tremendous insight to the general, non-specific reports currently available.

Members of a participating medical specialty society can access CompChart from their society’s website, from the link provided by the society to each member or by clicking the “Go to CompChart” button on the top right corner at www.GreenMarkPartrners.com. Entering a few pieces of information allows our system to validate and authenticate your identity immediately. Physician members of participating medical specialty societies simply enter their Verification Code to access directly the CompChart application. Once you register, we provide a Study Guide and Worksheet for your particular specialty. These materials precisely mirror the questionnaire you will complete in the study application. Once you complete the study, you will receive full access to aggregated information for every study question on your user page. provides the ability to filter your specialty database to examine variables such as total compensation or call pay among a more comparable group, not the entire database. The results can be very different and powerfully enlightening.

If you are not a member of a participating medical specialty society, contact your society and ask them to offer as a member benefit.

Unfortunately, no. For the study information to meet our quality goals, we need high study response rates. This is the only way for the information to be of any value to anyone. Fortunately, participation has been designed to require little effort and a short time commitment. Then, as a participant, you’ll have access to all the study data at no cost.

We believe measures of clinical effort and compensation can figure prominently in a trainee’s decision to pursue a particular specialty. For that reason, GreenMark provides access to aggregated study information to residents and fellows at no cost through their medical specialty society.

We design each study to capture only the information essential to you. You should be able to complete the entire study in 20 minutes. The study software was designed for use by busy physicians with limited computer ability. Our goal is to allow you to be done as fast as possible by clicking buttons and sliding sliders for data entry.

No. You will need to know how much you are compensated and for what effort, as well as one piece of information from your last federal tax return. You will also need some information about your clinical practice during the reporting period (amount of call, productivity information, etc.). Sometimes we find it best to have a practice manager or Human Resource professional in your office assist by completing this information prior to accessing the study application. Once you register, we provide a Study Guide and Worksheet to facilitate collecting and entering the correct information.

Yes, but completing the study is easy if you have done so in the past. GreenMark recognizes the value of your time. Your study questionnaire will be pre-populated with your previous responses so that you simply need to update the information. The fewer changes in your productivity and compensation, the less time required to gain access to the study data and .
